round bead


oceans jewel

found in a crown

divers risk the waters

always the rarest sought

given to love longed most

symbol of  purity’s given pride

a picture of God’s greatest gift

What I am Up To!

Time seems to be very busy and swift to fly by here so blog posts are not daily.  I am hating that but to be honest it has been funnier to come to library for the internet instead of having it at home.  My provider was always raising up the cost of the net and I found that hard to take.

I continue using the talk radio channel I have found also and have enjoyed it so much more then television.  Somehow listening to a voice and forming the pictures in your mind sees to keep the brain on it’s toes so to speak and gleaming information is so much fun.

I have started a research project because of a fact or not so fact I heard on the radio the other day and am amazed at what I am finding out that I did not know.  Been reading about JFK.

I will leave you with this thought:

You are all



and inspiring.

Stuck In the Middle With You

I started off my day with this song on my tongue and as I was wondering why I could not help but think how lucky I am to be stuck in the middle with you.  I could have been a clown or a joker but I am stuck with the group in the middle and it is a pretty wonderful spot to be in anyway here is a link if anyone would like to listen to this song.  I had always found it fun, and a happy song.


I have for you also who wrote it and preformed it.  Screenshot_19


Are We Ever Really Strangers


I was on my way to Winter Fete here in Alexandria when this gentleman was coming up the opposite way on the sidewalk.  Well I was doing my best to make sure I did not upset him by taking his photo but the more I turned the camera away the sadder he seemed so I took his photo which made him laugh and smile.  So are we ever really strangers or all connected by an inner thread of human need for contact and friendship.
